Are You a Burnt Out Working Mom? Here’s How to Relax



Motherhood can be difficult, especially if you are a working mom!

 

Recent data suggest that nearly 93% of working women feel burnt out every few months. Work deadlines, kids’ school schedules, house chores — managing all at once can take a toll on health. 

 

While the feeling of burnout can lead to clinical depression, experts suggest mothers continuously indulge in self-care tips to cope. These tips can help them feel content and empowered in motherhood and life, as well. 

 

Read on to know more about these tips. 

 

 

Talk it Out 

 

Negative thoughts and emotions will always be a part of your life. So, instead of repressing your emotions, it’s wise to let them out of your head. Repressing them could cause both mental and physical issues in the long run, if not in the short run. 

 

Whenever you feel exhausted, anxious, or stressed, talk to someone you trust, be it your husband or friends. You will feel much better. 

 

 

Take Regular Breaks 

 

Parenting can be a real task. You can’t really function for long without taking enough breaks. Many mums feel guilty about taking some time for themselves or doing nothing, for that matter. That’s not the right approach, experts say.  

 

Once you get done with your work and the household chores, be sure to take at least an hour for your ‘me-time .’

 

Utilize this time to do whatever you want, be it talking to a friend, watching your favorite show, or anything that makes you feel good. 

 

 

Share the Load 

 

You don’t have to be a superhero. You’re a human being first and then a mother. If you think there’s too much on your plate, ask for help. Share your load.  

 

Ask your husband to deal with your kid’s school and stuff while you look after the house. 

 

Asking for help doesn’t make you weak; it rather shows you’re strong enough not to give up. 

 

Try Cannabis Strains to Relax Your Mind 

 

Did you know cannabis can help your mind relax? 

 

A significant percentage of people, including both men and women, with 7% of women, prefer smoking to feel the effects of cannabis. 

 

Cannabis strains like pink kush, bubba kush, blue dream, sour diesel, and granddaddy purple are popular among users. Or, read more about these strains on the internet to get a better idea. These can help you relax your restless mind and relieve muscle tension, the most common physical symptom of stress and anxiety. 

 

Workout Everyday

 

For busy working moms, it might get tricky to work out for 60-minutes three times a week. What you can do is schedule a five to ten-minute exercise session at least five times a week to keep your body in movement. 

 

Did you know engaging in physical activity stimulates different chemicals in your brain that make you feel more relaxed and less anxious? 

 

Try Deep Breathing Exercises 

 

Deep breathing is a powerful way to calm down your nervous system. While one might think of it as just normal breathing, breathing activates the parasympathetic nervous system, which conserves energy for bodily functions, including digestion and urination. 

 

It helps you manage stress, improve your focus, and get a good night’s sleep. Diaphragmatic breathing, breath focus technique, pursed lip breathing, and lion’s breathing are some of the popular breathing techniques

 

Final Words 

 

Working moms can find it hard to deal with motherhood and their professional life. Instead of getting demotivated, try to incorporate these tips into your routine to strike a balance.

 

With time, you’ll get used to the circumstances, and episodes of burnout will surely be reduced.
